In a series of tweets on Thursday, Donald Trump displayed his unabashed disdain for the American citizens of Puerto Rico.
No matter that the number of people on that beleaguered island without electricity is still rising. No matter that people without access to clean drinking water are breaking into government toxic waste sites so their families won’t die of thirst. No matter that all those supplies and personnel are languishing on the docks and in offices without the benefit of a leader to organize a response.
According to Donald Trump, the people of Puerto Rico have no one but themselves to blame, and we can’t be there FOREVER – even though the hurricane that leveled the island that is part of this country, whose citizens are American citizens, was only three weeks ago. Donald Trump is sick and tired of their whining. After all, he managed to distribute supplies. Remember when he threw all those paper towels at the crowd? I mean, really, what more do those people want?
Puerto Rico survived the Hurricanes, now a financial crisis looms largely of their own making.” says Sharyl Attkisson. A total lack of…..
…accountability says the Governor. Electric and all infrastructure was disaster before hurricanes. Congress to decide how much to spend….
…We cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!
Then, in the irony of all ironies, after spewing his hatred all over Twitter for the entire world to see, he bleats about how unfairly he’s been treated, ignoring the FACT that the news is just reporting what he does – or does not do. Like helping out American citizens in the direst of need just because they are the wrong color and speak the wrong language.
The Fake News Is going all out in order to demean and denigrate! Such hatred!
How long is Congress going to allow this to continue?
